The results of the February California bar exam were released over the weekend. The Thomas Jefferson School of Law had 55 1st time takers, of whom 33 passed, for a 1st time passing rate of 60 percent. This compares with the California ABA 1st time taker rate of 62 percent and the Non-California ABA 1st time taker rate of 48 percent. Of the 1st time takers, 25 were participants in the Bar Secrets program, of whom 16 passed, for a passing percentage of 64 percent. Of the remaining 30 1st time takers, 17 passed, for a passing percentage of 57 percent. I offer my congratulations to the successful bar candidates and look forward to continued success by the school’s graduates.
I will update you soon about the success rate for graduates who sat for the bar exam in other states. That number continues to exceed the California bar rates.
